One of the dinners our kids enjoy most is “Swiss Chalet chicken and sauce.” It’s too expensive for our family of 7 to eat out regularly, so sometimes, when I’ve gone grocery shopping late in the afternoon, I’ll bring back a store-bought rotisserie chicken and the accompanying sauce. On days I’m less pressed for time, we can enjoy the same amazing flavor by roasting a whole chicken in our own oven and dipping the pieces in this low-carb, gluten-free, sugar-free, THM Fuel Pull, copycat Swiss Chalet sauce!
American friends, I imagine our Swiss Chalet is comparable to your Chick-Fil-A, although it’s not decidedly Christian owned and operated. It’s “the chicken restaurant” chain here – the place people go when they’re craving the bird for lunch or dinner.
Swiss Chalet is famous for their chicken just as much as they are for their sauce. It’s the perfect blend of spices and tang for dipping cooked chicken into. This copycat Swiss Chalet Sauce recipe taste awfully close to the real deal. Don’t be alarmed by the long list of ingredients; you probably have all of them right inside your spice cupboard or pantry:
- chicken broth
- white vinegar
- tomato paste
- mineral salt
- Frank’s red hot sauce
- onion powder
- ground ginger
- xanthum gum
Simmered together for a few minutes in a saucepan and thickened a little with xanthum gum, this sauce will turn your kitchen into your own Swiss Chalet. Enjoy.
